    “Lovely house with superb view.”

    Very clean and excellently equipped. Probably the best equipped house I've stayed in. Very close to local pubs, shop and ferry. Some nice walks from the house and the beaches are lovely - would be great for swimming in warmer weather. Overwhelmingly positive feelings about the house and very glad I booked it but there were a couple of negatives. ...

    Very clean and excellently equipped. Probably the best equipped house I've stayed in. Very close to local pubs, shop and ferry. Some nice walks from the house and the beaches are lovely - would be great for swimming in warmer weather. Overwhelmingly positive feelings about the house and very glad I booked it but there were a couple of negatives. The house does get cold when the weather is not so warm and doesn't seem to retain its heat too well even though the walls are very thick. The gas heating is good but could be expensive if left on for long periods (there are plenty of warnings about this in the information folder in the house). We turned off most of the radiators and heated only 3 rooms in the evening and on a couple of chilly mornings so we weren't shocked by the cost of gas and electricity at the end of the holiday. There was no information about where we could park though a word with the caretaker sorted this out - it would have been good to have this information before we got there or even in the information folder in the house. There was also no information about where the bins were situated so we just used the ones beside the adjacent houses. Fish and chips from the take away were a bit pricey considering the chips were from a packet and were not hand cut (a bit disappointing).

The property

If you have ever dreamt of waking up to the sounds and smells of the sea, then this semi-detached cottage in Cleggan, County Galway, is the one for you.

Sea views can be enjoyed from most rooms at this cosy Cleggan cottage, which backs onto the water and is just yards from the village's small fishing harbour.

Enjoy a cup of tea in bed, listening to the seagulls overhead, or a leisurely breakfast watching the morning sunlight glint off the waves of the ever-changing sea outside the open plan living area.

A day out from this cottage in Cleggan can take so many forms, from a walk on the beach or a trip on the ferry to Inishbofin Island, a morning deep-sea angling, an afternoon exploring the beautiful Connemara National Park, or an evening out in the vibrant town of Clifden.

On returning to your cottage in Cleggan, what better way to relax than in the sauna?

Then, cook up a storm with delicious local produce (maybe some fresh seafood?) and settle in for the evening, ready to see even more of this beautiful county the very next day.

Boats for deep sea angling are also available for hire from the village. Just to the east of Cleggan, there is an amazing collection of prehistoric monuments including tombs, standing stones and pre-bog field walks. Cleggan is also well-situated for exploring this wonderful region with Connemara National Park, Kylemore Abbey and the vibrant town of Clifden, County Galway, all just 7 miles away.
